An excellent and very sample-worthy soundtrack created by Bruno Nicolai for the Italian Giallo classic, La Dama Rossa Uccide Sette Volte (The Red Queen Kills Seven Times). “Every one hundred years, the Red Queen who inhabited the castle awakens from the dead to kill seven people before finding peace again.” Bruno Nicolai, was living his best life in 1972 when this was released, working with his friend and colleague, Ennio Morricone. This soundtrack is one of Nicolai’s best works, flawlessly bringing together the pop and underground music sensitivity of the 1970s with the gothic nuances of the plot – thanks to a clever use of harpsichords. The exquisite, sweet and sensual lounge tracks are counterbalanced by tense, deranged, and suspense-filled dodecaphonic highlights. The obstinate bass lines also become the perfect soundtrack for the Red Queen’s murders and her victim’s desperate getaways. Of course, this is pressed on Blood Red vinyl. Gatefold Jacket. Limited Edition.
